A single rose has become my garden. The birthday gift from my beloved got monumental at Vienna Volksgarten (People’s Park). The park stands out on one thing, and that’s its dedication to roses – with hundreds of species of rose shrubs, bushes and climbers. The garden was originally destined to be enjoyed solely by the city’s nobility, having been created as part of the Hofburg Palace grounds. It was later decided to open it for the city to enjoy, making this the first public garden in Vienna – hence its name, “The People’s Garden”.
